The Waterwheel Powered Trash Interceptor collects and removes trash and debris at a fraction of the per ton cost of other systems for the following reasons: 

  • Uses all renewable energy, therefore fuel costs are minimized.
  • Effectively contains and collects debris at a single point before it disperses throughout the harbor, saving labor and effort.
  • Uses reusable refuse containers (i.e., dumpsters instead of disposable nets) thus reducing operational costs.
  • Incorporates high quality construction for durability and low maintenance costs.
